The First Dinner Series

How was race impacted you?

How has race impacted your behavior?


It's time to talk about your first time. Let’s talk about an experience that we can all share. This dinner series seeks to explore each guest’s first encounter with race and how that experience has shaped their behavior.

Come join an intimate conversation and learn about yourself. 

This dinner topic will become a recurring program from Nourish, especially focusing on guests who will be participating in community conversation for the first time. The pop up event will be held at Welkem Studios as an exclusive Nourish Event.

On the eve of the November mid-term elections, I am thrilled to be kicking off the fall program of the dinner series. Participants will be exploring the American identity and unpacking questions that are top of mind in our culture. 

Let's talk about what it means to be American Right right now.


 Please join me for a cocktail hour and three-course family style meal. The conversation will highlight two voices from the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project. I'm excited to welcome the Development and Communications Director, Maria Kolby Wolfe, and Clinical & Forensic Psychology Claudia Antuña into the Nourish Community.

Let's try something new! This month I'm inviting guests to take part in the Double Exposure exhibit at the SAM. This collection challenges the power of perspective and raises the meaningful question: 

How do we perceive ourselves and interpret other people? 

Double Exposure offers a unique opportunity to explore the concept of identity through the lens of three different artists.

I am so excited to welcome our expert guest Dr. Jonathan Kanter to the table. I met Jonathan recently at a workshop hosted at the UW. He is the Director at the Center for the Science of Social Connection. We both have a desire to bring people together in order to build a more compassionate community.

Jonathan's research is focused on understanding micro-aggressions and it's impacts on marginalized groups. This work is essential to better understanding and addressing racism and prejudice.

This month, Nourish will be hosted at Capitol Hill’s locally owned – Marjorie. It is a warm and inviting space that is infused with thoughtful elements of family history and a Caribbean style. As you'll see when you get there - all are welcome and mingling is encouraged.

This month, the conversation will highlight the impact of unconscious bias and how it plays a role in our understanding of the “other.”
